The best thing about this hotel ism its central location. The facilities are correct but could be better. The food is good. After all we are in Lyon! The staff at the front desk is kind and helpful. Good for a couple of nights if you don't need to stay in your room but are planning to visit the Old...

This lovely boutique hotel in 2 adjoining historic buildings in the Presqu'île section of Lyon, is perfectly situated whether you wish to walk or use the superb Lyon Metro system for getting to sightseeing, museums and restaurants. I need to specially compliment the gracious service, both at the reception desk and in the breakfast room. Breakfast was incredible, so many...

This place is in the Terreaux area which is packed with restaurants, markets and shopping nearby. It's about a 20 euro taxi ride from either of the 2 nearest train stations. There is an elevator. The bed was the most comfortable I've had so far in Europe - supportive but soft enough to sink into a little. An extra pillow...

Two nights in this lovely, accommodating hotel in belle Lyon. Good size room, characterful pool and good quality breakfast! Best of all in a city like Lyon was the location, handy for the old town and walks along the two rivers.

We stayed here in July not fully knowing what to expect from Lyon and the drive from the station to the hotel had us wondering what we had done! But what a delight - both the hotel and Lyon! Lovely "French" room, not huge but enough for two and a nice bathroom, it even had window which opened onto the...

We were staying here for an action packed 24 hrs or so to go to the France v Ireland game at the Euro Cup. The hotel was conveniently located to walk to most tourist attractions which was very nice. We stayed in the second category of room which had sufficient space although it would have been tight if we had...

Lyon is a fantastic city and it was great to be so centrally located. This hotel is like a tardis and being in the centre of town it has to be compact. Our room was more than comfortable with every detail thought out right down to the fluffy white robes :-) The staff were super helpful and the hotel's hidden...

Stayed for 4 nights as a family of 4. The hotel is in a great location, a fair way from the station but walkable to most sights and with a vast array of restaurants and bars very close. The rooms were a little on the small side, and no fridge or kettle were provided in the room. The bathrooms were...

Grand Hotel des Terreaux is a charming and exclusive hotel with charming and cosy rooms. A nice indoor swimmingpool and a lovely breakfast buffet. The staff was very friendly too.
